Liverpool and Manchester United transfer target Tom Ince says he is not seeking to leave Blackpool any time soon.

Ince has dazzled at Broomfield Road this season and has reportedly been the subject of interest from some of the Premier League's biggest clubs.

The 21-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in January, but the move hit a stumbling block and fell through.

Manchester United have previously shown an interest in the former Liverpool youngster, with scouts from Old Trafford running the rule over the talented winger in November.

Ince, who claimed the Football League Young Player of the Year award last night, says he is not thinking about moves to Manchester United or Liverpool, but is focused on helping Blackpool finish on a high in the Championship.

“It’s great having that speculation and it’s very flattering," he told TalkSPORT. "To have teams of that magnitude saying you’re a decent player, it gives me a smile and flatters me a lot.

“For me though it’s about putting my faith in Blackpool because without that club, my team-mates and the fans I wouldn’t be Football League Young Player of the Year and the player I am now.

“My dream is to play at the top level and to achieve my ambitions, but it’s all about timing and patience, so when you get to the top you are ready to go and not jumping too soon.”

When asked about potential moves to Manchester United or Liverpool in January, Ince, son of Red Devils favourite Paul Ince, replied: “I don’t think any of the moves were close."

Whether either Liverpool or Manchester United retain an interest in Ince remains unclear, although with Blackpool well off the play-offs and close to being dragged into the relegation dogfight, a move could be reignited in the summer.
